This room highlights Beth’s preference for symmetry and clean lines. “I was definitely going for traditional with some edge,” she says. Beth wanted her new built-in china cabinet to look original to the circa-1920s house. The floral-print wallpaper has a hand-painted look that gives the room a feeling that is “somehow formal and informal at the same time,” Holly says.
